Before there were good games With Uruguay (2012), Argentina (2009). A recent game With Azerbaijan (September 3, 4: 0), which come in 3, 5, thousands of spectators, brought us only losses. The RFU this, However, does not apply. All expenses, including the payment of bonus to the team in case of positive results, we are».
according to the interviewer, in the nearest friendly match, which will be held on November 18, team Russia will not play against a top team.

All his decisions are clear and logical. Fifteen November team of the Russian Federation will hold a qualifying match for Euro 2016 Austria in Vienna. 3 days later — friendly game. If you think about it — it is easy to understand, With the team what class and where geographically can play the national team of the Russian Federation. In the Northern part of cold. Fly away don’t want to. To meet a strong team makes no sense».
